Bravo’s first scripted series, “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” follows self-help author Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein). A former picture of perfection, Abby finds herself navigating life as a single woman in her 40’s after her seemingly idealistic career and marriage simultaneously implode. In addition to Alanna Ubach’s Jo, who is Abby’s best friend from her college days, the cast also includes Paul Adelstein as Abby’s ex-husband, Jake. Maury Sterling has been cast in the recurring role of Jo’s ex-husband, Frumpkis. He also has a new wife, a southern belle named Charlene (“Smash” alum Megan Hilty). Meanwhile, Aaron Staton (“Mad Men”) will be recurring as JD, a new love interest for one of the show’s many single ladies.
The series is created and executive produced by Marti Noxon and hails from Universal Cable Productions (UCP).
